(STATEHOUSE) Feb. 20, 2009 -State Rep. Rich McClain (R-Logansport) offered the following statement about House Bill 1001, the budget bill:
"We will be in worse shape than we ever thought possible next year if we continue with the one-year budget. Other states might have a working one-year budget, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will work for Indiana; especially when those states using a one-year budget are in the red.
"Indiana is currently in the black, and we are supposed to be working to keep it that way."
